If I were to drill a hole right through the planet and jump in, would me head or my feet come out first on the other side?

did you jump head first? then it would be your head. I'll just sail half way around the world and wait for you on the other side.

hehe. As far as I understtod your question, no of them will be out on the other side due to differents causes: - going through Magma will burn you. - in case you have something to avoid magma temperature (like movie The Core) Earth gravitional force would keep you near the Earth center. On the other hand, maybe I did not understand correctly your question. Cheers,
